RE: Arcane Device

The echoplex has knobs for input volume, output volume, mix, and feedback
control. (that's four!) With midi cc knobs, you can control feedback (in
addition to the front) and loop out volume (=5!!). You can even plug a 
in the back for feedback, loop out volume, or delay line in volume (=6!!!).
There's not really any other parameter available where it would make sense
to use a knob on it. Most people use the mix and feedback knobs all the 
to control things. What else would you like knobs to do?  

oh, and everything can be controlled with your tappin' feet.
